New Media & Earthy Fashion
In June 2011, the French headquartered couture online store and catalogue retailer La Redoute has sent the information that Vanessa Bruno is the new guest designer in fall/winter 2011/12 for a limited edition of pieces for women, girls, babies.
The designer uses new media in an elegant way to spread the information about her nature inspired collections; especially the activities in producing the new format 'online fashion movies' make the label mentionable in the field of new technologies.
It is worth to visit Vanessa Bruno's website. The site integrates new media very unspectacular without loosing the focus on the content: the philosophy of Vanessa Bruno is packed into a puristic layout which navigates the user easily to the collections. The seasonal women's wear is presented additionally to catwalk views with fashion movies; the leading thread of the films are the elements of life (in SS2011 especially water). The short movies are already embedded on several edgy online fashion sites. The hyperlink to the latest SS2011 Vanessa Bruno film can be found on this page (below).
The nature addiction of the designer is communicated on vanessabruno.com with another new media mix; this time fashion and music. Under the category 'Plant a Tree', Vanessa Bruno invites users to buy a compilation of songs (on a physically released CD - available at Colette in Paris) for the support of reforestation.
